Jawbone Canyon is a must ride, espeacialy if your from Europe. You can ride from the high desert to the Pacific Crest trail of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Lake Isabella, the views will not disapoint! Hungry Valley/Gorman is another area close to the LA basin. In Central California, Clear Creek is a must. It is home to the toughest enduro in America and is sceanic at the higher elevations. In Northern California Upper Lake is great (On the north side of Clear Lake just one hour Northeast of San Francisco). If you want to try out Clear Creek let me know. If I can't meet you, the group that puts on the National Enduro is there weekly and I can put you in touch with one of the members.

Sounds good guys. How much road mileage may we have to do, we may not have a truck to haul the bikes. I am hoping the ones I saw for rent are road legal etc.........?!?!

Dont know where to stay yet, maybe TO, maybe down in Newport or LAguna areas. But somewhere we can hit some good trails and really get the CA off road expeience, (middle of no where, rattlesnakes, hillbillies with shotguns showing photos of "their wives and mothers", with just one woman on it!! Well maybe not!

So time of year......? Are the trails open all year round.......? Dont mind a bit of rain (good job based on where I live) but wan tt get some good riding in for sure.

I have an offer on some cheapish flights to LA (£300) but it ends tomorrow! So need to pull our fingers out and book it!

Keep the ideas comin!
